1932 Video Clip

Print PDF

An old Austin Motor Co. promotional video that features a drive through Chawton Village has come to light on YouTube. To see the whole video, Click Here. Alternately, skip to 7:41 through to 8:09 where the view switches to the rear view mirror, this shows Chawton on the main Winchester road from Alton towards the Museum. This was taken before the A31 was built and the road priority was changed to Wolfe's Lane.

You can see the old post office, Alphonsus House (3 storey house) on the right, Denmead (thatched cottage), the Village Hall, the pub.

Thanks to Graham Rankin for finding this one.
